“Unique restaurant and bar”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

The city was very busy for nine people to eat but the Buffalo Nickel Bar & Grill was able to get us in and served us well. The staff was terrific with a wide choices of dishes from our group. And we felt like we stepped back into the west. Go in and just have a drink to check the place out.

“Didn't Get to Eat”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Tried to eat at this restaurant, but never got served. Large group of bikers came in after us and got served before us. We were told after 20 minutes, "2 minutes to go." Fifteen minutes later, "Thanks for your patience, I have my eye on your order." Ten minutes later we left. We left four singles for our tea while watching several others who showed up after us served. Sigh. It may be a great restaurant, but we'll never know, because we'll never go back. Don't like to be treated like that more than once.

“The best chicken fried steak I've ever had”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

OK it is the only chicken friend steak that I've ever had. We embraced Texas and had an all 'chicken fried' meal at the Buffalo Nickel. Friendly staff, big size portions, inexpensive and tasty. The table next to us had some very good looking desserts. We were too stuffed to even consider it........next time.

“Perfect Lunch spot”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

I liked this restaurant the minute we walked in the door. It was laid back, plenty of unusual things to look at from the furniture to the wall art. They have a lunch menu, but the beef strip salad caught my eye right away with the tortilla strips and homemade dressing. Hubby had the buffalo burger with bacon and it was a definite winner also. Next time I visit and I will, I plan to try out the pulled pork BBQ. Ok, I'm hungry right now. Yes, will be back

“Off the Main Street and well worth the visit ”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

We have been here twice during our stay in Fredericksburg. Our waiter, Tim, pretty much provided a surprise menu for us on our first visit and we were not disappointed!!! The bison sliders are AWESOME and the bread pudding is a must! We shared the buffalo burger and it was quite tasty! This evening we had the jalepano poppers (good but not as good as the sliders) and shared the pulled pork sandwich....delicious!!! Oh and for dessert the brownie sundae was AMAZING! Please stop by here while you're in Fredericksburg, you won't be disappointed! Make sure to ask for Tim!
